COVID-19 and Safety Measures

The BACP have issued this latest statement for businesses and private practitioners working in rented business premises - Nov 2020

"Government guidance under the current national Covid restrictions, allows businesses providing services relating to mental health to remain open.  It also permits people to leave their home to receive these services”

We want to ensure that our service is being used with additional safety measures in place. We have carried out a thorough coronavirus risk assessment for the use of the rooms, and have listed the strict guidelines that need to be followed to ensure the safety of our therapists and clients.

We want to make you aware of measures that you can take whilst using the therapy rooms and provide you with further information.

  • There is anti-bacterial hand wash in both bathrooms’ downstairs.

  • There is a hand sanitising station on the landing outside the therapy rooms. This includes hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial wet wipes, tissues and a peddle bin to dispose of wipes and tissues

  • Please use the hand sanitiser before you enter the room and after your sessions. Please ask your clients to do the same.

  • There will be no drinks provided for your sessions. This is to reduce the contact of items, cups, and the spread of any infection. Please bring your own provisions for water and ask your clients to do the same.

  • Please use the therapy chairs with social distancing as much as you can. Room B is slightly smaller, so you may need to book room A for couple counselling.

  • Please use the anti-bacterial wipes to wipe down door handles and chair arms, after your session.

  • Try to not book a session straight after the person before, this is to reduce the number of people coming into contact at the same time. I understand this may not always be possible, so please keep your distance.

  • The therapy rooms are thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis with anti-bac wipes. 

  • We ask that you cancel your sessions immediately and not use our service if you start to feel unwell with a mild fever or persistent cough.

  • We want all of you to feel comfortable and safe while using our therapy rooms. Please do get in touch at info@hovecounsellingandpsychotherapy.co.uk if you would like to discuss the safety measures further.
